College Library

The college has an open access library with a rich collection of the latest, advanced reference books as well classic texts and basic books apart from various journals, magazines and newspapers. The Central Library as well as Seminar Libraries in all the departments in the college provides Text and Reference Books of different specialized areas as well as Journals of both International and National Publishing Houses.

The rapid evolution of information and communication technology in the learning field imposes supports and stimulates the re-engineering of the library. Our library has changed in past few years and ever new ways of creating, storing, organizing, and providing information have been evolved. Our college has responded to modern methods of learning. The library remains responsible for acquiring or providing access to books, periodicals and other media that meet the educational and informational needs in a stimulating, scholarly environment conducive to academic pursuits.

Very recent, the Central Library has been shifted to the new six-storey building with a vision to set up a digitized open access system with a big reading room infrastructure and for the best use of the library potential, accessibility to the books. The library is constantly in use by the students as well as teachers. The central library houses more than 55,000 text and reference books, 40 journals and subscribes about 600 e-journals. There are some helpful study-materials in CDs to help students to go deep into their courses. Besides, students are always free to use the departmental seminar library and books are requisitioned from the central library for their use.
